Snooki, aka Nicole Polizzi, the Chilean-American reality star best known for her appearances on MTV show 'Jersey Shore', has revealed the secret behind her dramatic weight loss. Images of a slim looking Snooki began circulating the internet this week, with some fans suggesting she may have used Hcg - the hormone produced during pregnancy.
The reality star is said to have shed around 17 pounds while shooting the latest season of Jersey Shore in Europe. Speaking to Twitter followers this week, Polizzi said, "Glad to hear reports that say I look good =) but it's not because of Hcg! Thanks @Zantrex!" Although she is thought to have cut back on food and alcohol, Snooki has primarily used the Zantrex-3 Fat Burner to help with her weight loss. The company recently issued photos of the star's slimmer figure and Snooki revealed she is a spokesperson for the product, which "gives her energy to work out". Zantrex is an amphetamine-free diet drug made up of herbs, yerba mate, green tea, and caffeine.
Jersey Shore is currently airing its fourth season, which was shot in Italy during the first half of 2011. Mtv have confirmed the fifth season will air in 2012, with the cast returning to Seaside Heights.
